It has been suggested that PIBF isoforms act as ligands implicated in the activation of proliferation signaling pathways including JAK1/STAT6 [9, 10, 12, 38], through the interaction with a receptor heterocomplex consisting of PIBF-R, which is attached to the plasma membrane by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol [13], and membrane receptor IL-4R[alpha] [10,12].
All stereoisomers act as mediator of insulin action inside the cell [7]: myoinositol (MYO) and D-chiro-inositol (DCI) are inositol-containing phosphoglycan (IPG) mediators, generated by hydrolysis of glycosylphosphatidylinositol that inhibits cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (the first) and activates pyruvate dehydrogenase (the second one) [8].
The acquired mutation in PNH occurs in the phosphatidylinositol glycan anchor biosynthesis, class A (PIGA) gene, which is responsible for the first step in the synthesis of the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor that attaches a subset of proteins to the cell surface [6].
